I can only assume that she remains completely immune to criminal and civil liability for false arrest, false imprisonment, defamation, etc. Even after she has admitted she had no right to commit these actions.
Where is the judge who signed the warrants? Is it not that person's responsibility to protect us from law enforcement when it behaves in such a manner?
What makes you think that prevarication is limited to the benefit of the agencies of the official despots? Many news organs have opinions and reputed facts that go off their editorial pages into direct and indirect attacks on governmental policies and those who dream them up.
I do agree that Obama's call for "truth" in public communication is an obvious attempt to censor the news. Obama's "truth" is certainly not my TRUTH. My TRUTH is rarely congruent with that of any politician.
The (D v R) bigotry in this column of comments is incredible. Individual life views are so stratified, that no matter what is presented, it is accepted or rejected based on existing petrified conceptions.
While I certainly agree with you, there are whole trials that are withheld from the public, only known to exist because of docket numbers that have no tie in to any extant case.
The courts were our last hope. The executive branch, Congress and the Fourth Estate have long been beyond having even a facade of interest in a democratic republic, and the now it is extraordinary news when a judge dimly recalls that there was a document called the Constitution or the Amendments thereof.
Re: Re: believe there is "some way" to do the impossible.
The other one is no better. Like Clinton, he does little but lie, obfuscate and destroy. Even calling for violence in the streets.
I am glad that I live in a state where the winner is foreordained. I can write in a brief "candidate" of total expressing total disgust. Not that it means anything, but at least I don't have to vote for either one.
Just what enterprises will have exceptions made for them?
Are the financial houses willing to go along with weakened encryption when literally trillions of dollars are at stake? Now trillions may not mean much to the US government, but I can't imagine a brokerage house being willing to use "bump key" breakable encryption.
One consideration with one time pads is that the key is completely random. A software random number generator (PSRNG) is difficult to make sufficiently random. Having worked with Monte Carlo simulations and other projects requiring high quality PSRNGs, I will tell you that many claimed "adequate" generators are in fact not. At least some one time pads have been broken.
Ms Clinton showed great humility in listening to experts in the trading of commodities and stock. The proceeds of which were often moved from someone else's account to hers. She also listened to the experts who allowed her to trade in violation of exchange rules.
What a pity she can't seem to listen to experts when the issues involved don't result in incredulous sums being deposited to her accounts.
When the nerds are finished finding the golden backdoor key, they should start nerding on squaring the circle. Then eliminating air pollution by finding a way to revoke the Second Law of Thermodynamics.
Audio techniques have also been employed, as well as interpreting fan speed changes. Undoubtedly many more.
As far as encryption goes, even the old standby of one time pads have been cracked on occasion.
If you think your smart phone is safe if it never leaves your hands, think again. Celebrite makes devices that can directly read everything on your smartphone without physical contact, or invading your personal space (just your smartphone.)
Perhaps you are not old enough to see the steady erosion of Constitutional rights, or possibly you are not paying attention.
Government starts stealing these rights from those who are least able to defend themselves -- the poor and those who have little or no legal standing in the country. They don't start at the top, where people have social and political standing, money, connections and high quality defense lawyers. Gradually the behaviors of law enforcement become second nature, and they climb the social ladder.
What I gave you was an example of how the process works outside of government. But it is the same inside -- just slower.
A higher percentage of blacks and Latinos are killed by police than whites. But in absolute numbers, more whites are killed than blacks. This is true even though almost all those shown and talked about are black or Latino.
It is a serious mistake to separate black, Latino and white live. It makes whites feel that they are immune to cops bullets and batons. It is a class issue, and the struggle against police brutality and murder can only be resolved by a united front of all. Splintering the affected groups is a standard mechanism for weakening and defeating them.
I knew an owner who only hired blacks. After they attempted to bring in a union, he hired the best mix he could by sex, race, age and marital status. Nobody trusted each other, and he never had another unionization attempt. This is the standard practice of governmental power expansion. Start with immigrants, then blacks/Latinos, finally whites.
The medallion market is based on artificial scarcity created via corrupt politicians. There is no inherent reason why medallions should be so limited.
So medallion owners played the tulip bulb craze game, and now they are losing. I don't want to hear them cry about how unfair this is any more than the buggy whip makers cried about the the invention of cars.
